Addressing Some of the Terrible Aspects of the Victorian Age
Let's get it right out there, not everything about the Victorian Age was great. In fact, a lot of it was pretty terrible. Colonialism, for example. This time period saw events like the Anglo-Zulu war, the First and Second Boer Wars, the Indian Mutiny and the occupation of the Suez Canal resulting in Egypt becoming a protectorate of the British, the Crimean War, the Irish Famine, and a bunch of other bad things. Coming back to Colonialism, especially as it relates to the African nations, it was really awful. This game does not, in any way, intend to glorify anything remotely nearing state-sanctioned racism. In fact, players will find that the universe in which this game system is set has some pretty drastic differences as it relates to the role the African continent plays in word events. Think Wakanda and you are getting there. I hope that helps, and if it turns you off because you were excited to engage in some racist crap then up yours.
